Negative points

Mounting the Black + Decker GW3030 is particularly difficult. The assembly of the different parts of the device is complex and even requires the use of a sharp object. Its capacities are also rather limited compared to those of other models such as the McCulloch GBV 345. Indeed, it is not very suitable for vacuuming still wet wooden rods.

Positive points

The price of the Black + Decker GW3030 is very competitive. You could buy it for less than $83. Yet it has a quality worthy of the Black & Decker brand’s reputation. The materials from which it is made are of very good quality and have an impeccable finish. This unit is powered by a 3000 W motor powerful enough to peel off soaked leaves. It is also equipped with a concentrator nozzle that boosts the blowing speed up to 418 km/h (418 mph). This model also comes with a large capacity bag that can hold up to 50 litres of dead leaves. Equipped with a shredder, the machine will significantly reduce the volume of leafs sucked in.

In a few words

With a price under $83, the Black + Decker GW3030 is one of the cheapest thermal blowers tested in our test bench. However, its quality is not minimized. Although its performance is limited, this model is capable of blowing or vacuuming up all the dead leaves that are dirtying your garden.

Black + Decker GW3030 test: a powerful blower

The Black + Decker GW3030 is equipped with a 3000 W motor. This motor is powerful enough to offer very satisfactory blowing and suction capacities. The blowing speed can be up to 418 km/h when the concentrator nozzle is mounted. At the suction side, the machine can swallow up to 14 m3 of leaves per minute. Only the shredder will have average performance despite its very powerful turbine. It offers, in spite of a shredding rate of 1/16th, which remains satisfactory and is suitable for compost production.
